Let Them Know You Care!

Sometimes we think it doesn't matter.

Sometime it is too late to let them know.

Sometimes we believe they already know.


There are many in your life over the years.

Many contribute to you significantly.

Sometimes we take them for granted.

But do you know that your caring matters.


Some fear saying “I Love You.”

Some feel vulnerable saying they care.

Some avoid anything emotional.

Some don't want to  share real feelings.


It is important to share what is true.

It makes a different to let others know.

It changes lives to be willing to share.

It is the greatest gift you offer is your caring.


Why not?

Reach out to those in your past.

Speak out loud, “ I miss you” to those departed.

Express what is heartfelt to those around you.


Often and everyday, it is valuable to say the words.

Be open and willing to feel your love and appreciation.

Trust that what you share will make a big difference.

Allow your heart to feel how important each one is.


You begin to understand how important you are.

What you feel for them is what they feel for you

Underneath, in hiding the loving and caring is mutual.

When words are not spoken, there may always be doubt.


It is time to share.

It is important to care.

This is your invitation.

“I love you “and “I know you love me too!”


Caring is our way of remembering why we came together.

Loving You!

Parents make money.

Parents have lives to live.

But are we doing what is most needed?


Children are teaching us to pay attention.

Children need security and structure.

Children need opportunity and learning.

Children need confidence and appreciation.


What do we do with our families?

Are we learning and growing together?

But perhaps it is time to become more simple.

We can look at our priorities and principles.

We can always do what our neighbors are doing.

We can make sure we have a job, school and media.

We can pay our bills and follow the law, but do we care out one another?

We can do what is right in public, but do we treat one another with respect?


Our children need role models.

They learn from their parents, teachers and other adults.

They see our happiness and health, our caring and helpfulness.

Our youth wonder how hopeful and helpful life can be and happy life will be.


Are we complaining and demanding?

Are we showing them interest and courage to live life well?

Are children imagining how good life can be or how difficult?

Are we really proud of our accomplishments and contributions?

 

Let us look at the world our children see and ask what we want them to be.

Let us show them the way we want them to live and give, to learn and grow.

Let us let them know who valuable and important they really are to us and to themselves.

Let us begin by treating everyone with dignity and respect, with trust and encouragement.


Our next generations need us to believe in them.

Our children need the best education and opportunities.

Our children grow best in happy healthy environments focused on enjoying their learning.

Our children deserve our positive attention with an intention to show them our best selves.


It is time we turn our lives into what we want for them to have and enjoy.

Loving all our children,……and one another.
